Shenstone Court occupies a superb semi-rural location on the edge of this very sought after village situated midway between Sutton Coldfield and Lichfield. All the usual amenities are available including village shops, a school, several pubs/restaurants and regular train services to Birmingham and Lichfield from the village station. The more comprehensive facilities of Sutton Coldfield and Lichfield are close at hand as are the regions excellent motorway and trunk road connections via the M6 Toll/M42 the A38 and A5.
The House which was built in 1926 stands on the site of the original Georgian Hall once known as Shenstone Moss and owned by the eminent veterinary surgeon and agricultural industrialist Sir Richard Cooper. Approached from Court Drive, a private road, an electrically gated entrance provides an impressive approach via a long sweeping driveway, flanked by lawns and mature trees. Classic in appearance with stone mullions and leaded lights the house stands back with sweeping lawns and an extensive red tarmac driveway with turning circle and central lawn.
In recent years the property has undergone an extensive yet sympathetic programme of refurbishment and re-modelling successfully blending the many luxury elements of modern living with the influences of original design.
